Cabinet Secretaries to snub MP summons

13 October 2014, 19:23 William Korir

Nairobi - Cabinet Secretaries have been told not to attend parliamentary summons until consultations are done to check on their legality.

The order was revealed Monday through a letter by chief of staff Joseph Kinyua to the clerk of the national assembly.

In the letter, he said that there are ongoing consultations to see if the summons are within the law.

The summons were effected last month by MPs through the house oversight committee, where CS's would be attending summons to explain ongoings in their respective ministries.

Due Tuesday were Charity Ngilu from lands, Joseph Ole Lenku from interior and Jacob Kaimenyi from education.

The CS's were open to the sessions, with Ngilu saying she did not mind talking to the MPs on matters she says are open and straightforward.

" I have no problem. I see them as a step towards transparency, she said.

The Law Society of Kenya LSK however had faulted the summons, saying that they are illegal.

However, during a breakfast meeting between MPs and the CS's earlier this month, the MPs said that it was prudent CS's also be looked at from an oversight perspective to ensure they are within their stipulated boundaries.

" We ask that CS's cooperate and ensure they are able to attend and provide direction, Majority Leader Aden Duale had said.
